Anthropologie: Clothing Academics Since 1999

Whoever writes copy for Anthropologie obviously knows the customer base better than I thought. Case in point:

(I must have these) Tenure Trousers

Hmm. Maybe if I don't get tenure I can go write for Anthropologie.

Love your blog! and those pants -- although they'll probably get tenure before I do. No doubt Pants will publish trendy title like, Sartorial Sapphists and Well-Heeled Feminists: The Rise of the Pants Suit, Hilary, and Third Wave Feminism ... xo, Your Fan

Hee! That is very funny. Especially because when I first started this blog, my friend A thought about starting one of her own and calling it "The Freudian Pantsuit"!

I've been meaning to ask for a long time now: does one need to own these pants to get tenure, or she can only have them after she's promoted -- I'm not sure that even on sale they are affordable on assistant professor salary.
